We provides surgeons an exciting new option to potentially improve patient outcomes and safety. Over the past 2 years, 4 unique laser platforms have been introduced into the marketplace. The introduction of this new technology has been accompanied by a host of new clinical, logistical, and financial challenges for surgeons. This article describes the evolution of femtosecond laser-Assisted technology for use in cataract. It reviews the available laser platforms and discusses the necessary modifications in cataract technique and the logistics of incorporating a femtosecond laser-Assisted into one’s practice.
Given the recent introduction of this technology, the conventional nomenclature for these procedures is inconsistent. . The more common acronyms of femtosecond laser cataract surgery include ReLACS (refractive laser–assisted cataract surgery), FLACS (femtosecond laser–assisted cataract surgery), and FALCS (femtosecond–assisted laser cataract surgery).

Simple Steps to Take to Prevent Cataracts
Current Femtosecond Laser-Assisted technology systems use neodymium:glass 1053 nm (near-infrared) wavelength light. This feature allows the light to be focused at a 3 mm spot size, accurate within 5 mm in the anterior segment. The critical aspect of Femtosecond Laser-Assisted technology is the speed at which the light is fired. The focused ultrashort pulses (10-15 seconds) eliminate the collateral damage of surrounding tissues and the heat generation associated with slower excimer and neodymium:YAG lasers.
Femtosecond Laser-Assisted energy is absorbed by the tissue, resulting in plasma formation. This plasma of free electrons and ionized molecules rapidly expands, creating cavitation bubbles. The force of the cavitation bubble creation separates the tissue. The process of converting laser energy into mechanical energy is known as photodisruption. The Femtosecond Laser-Assisted technology virtually eliminates collateral damage and can therefore be used to dissect tissue on a microscopic scale
Femtosecond Laser-Assisted technology systems use photo dissection to create tissue planes and side cuts for LASIK flaps in the cornea. For this application, the parameters are typically set so neighboring shots do not entirely overlap, leaving tissue bridges that must be bluntly dissected. Femtosecond Laser-Assisted technology systems used to perform certain steps of Surgery may use closer spot settings to overlap these cavitation regions, eliminating tissue bridges (ie, during capsulorhexis creation). As with any new technology, software upgrades to the systems improve energy delivery and stability.
